Deltran Solar Battery Tender Application

by on Aug.18, 2011, under Battery Tenders, Solar

Thought a discussion of some typical battery “Group Codes” would be helpful…

Common battery size codes, i.e.,”Group” sizes, are based upon the physical size and terminal placement – NOT a measure of battery capacity.

Some typical Battery Group codes are: U1, 24, 27, and 31

Group U1    34-40 Amp hours 12 volts    (powersport, motorcycle, atv, jet ski, lawn equipment)

Charge maintained with Deltran 5W Solar Charger – 270 mA

Example solar application batteries of the U1 Group code:

Deka/MK 8GU1-DEKA Gel, 12 volt 31.6 AH

Concorde Sun Xtender PVX-340T Solar Battery VRLA-AGM Deep Cycle Battery 34 AH

Group 24    70-85 Amp hours 12 volts

Charge maintained with Deltran 10W Solar Charger – 540 mA

Example solar application batteries of the Group 24 code:

Deka/MK Battery 8G24 Gel RV Battery (Group 24 – 12V, 84 AH)

Concorde Sun Xtender PVX-690T Solar Battery VRLA-AGM Deep Cycle 69 AH

Group 27     85-105 Amp hours 12 volts    (automotive engine start batteries)

Charge maintained with Deltran 10W Solar Charger – 540 mA

Example solar application batteries of Group 27 code:

Deka/MK Battery 8G27-DEKA Sealed Gel Battery, 12 volt 88 AH

Concorde Sun Xtender PVX-1040T Solar Battery VRLA-AGM Deep Cycle 104 AH

  Group 31    95-125 Amp hours Deep Cycle and Marine batteries

Charge maintained with Deltran 15W Solar Charger – 830 mA

Example solar application batteries of Group 31 code:

Deka/MK 8G31-DEKA Gel, 12 volt 97.6 AH

Concorde Sun Xtender PVX-1080T Solar Battery VRLA-AGM Deep Cycle 108 AH

Message to our past eBay Customers

by on Jul.07, 2011, under Hello World!

We’d like to thank our past eBay customers for their business, as well as their interest in our products.

eBay has been an effective means of driving up search priority for Bohemian Biker LLC, and we appreciate that aspect.

Never-the-less, the ever increasing costs related to doing business via ebay have encouraged us to seek a more economical means.

eBay’s most recent changes in final value fee calculation prompted us to step-up the transition. 

As communicated in other posts, we have established an internet presence with an ecommerce website  www.solarcapitalist.com  and we have been processing orders by that means for a few months now.

Our sister company  Solar Capitalist LLC  was established to serve Bikers, as well as customers with an interest in Portable Solar Chargers, Battery Tenders, and Do-it-Yourself use of SAE 2 Pin related products. 

We are an Authorized Dealer for Deltran Battery Tenders and accessories, and Global Solar’s SUNLINQ line of Portable Solar Chargers and accessories.

Enabling our customers to conveniently maintain 12 volt batteries, access their battery and charging system 12V power, and even generate low voltage “off-grid” power is our aim…

Be it for a utility shed, backcountry adventures, or emergency preparedness – Let’s…  Capitalize on the Sun’s Energy !!! 

We encourage you to visit our new Solar Capitalist LLC ecommerce website, and we would welcome any questions, comments, or concerns you might communicate to us. 

Please send email to:   bohemianbiker@bohemianbiker.com   or   solaray@solarcapitalist.com

Once again – Thank You to all our past eBay customers !!!

See something that interests you? Email Us !!!

by on Mar.05, 2011, under Hello World!, Thoughts

Although eBay has been instrumental in gaining us exposure online, we encourage you to email us at: bohemianbiker@bohemianbiker.com

Please don’t feel forced to communicate with us via eBay – we answer numerous customer questions and inquiries via direct email.

On a daily and ever increasing basis, we process customer orders outside of eBay – often after answering technical questions or inquiries regarding quantities, combinations, and/or combined shipping.  BTW – we make it a point to use the most economical means of shipping (usually USPS 1st Class Mail), and we will always give our customers the benefit of combined shipping.

Direct email interaction not only allows us the opportunity answer questions, but also the opportunity to tailor a transaction to a customer’s specific needs.  We have a merchant account that facilitates the processing of credit card transactions, and we trust you will find us both flexible and accommodating.

In the interest of having the opportunity to provide the best possible service, we encourage customers to 1st email us questions – prior to placing an eBay order. 

2011 showed a marked increase in interaction outside of eBay – indicating this is preferred by many customers.

In addition to providing sometimes “hard-to-find” electrical components in desirable quantities, and at reasonable prices – another critical component of our niche is the ease we communicate and provide while doing business.

So, whether you are a Biker, or not – email us directly at:  bohemianbiker@bohemianbiker.com

We will answer your questions regarding access to the 12 volt power onboard your motorcycle (or other vehicle/craft) for a cell phone charger, heated clothing, or a GPS unit.  Your Deltran Battery Tender Quick Connect with its SAE 2 Pin connection, for example, provides such access using one of our 12V Power Port x SAE 2 Pin assemblies.

Currently, our products are available through our new e-commerce website at:  www.solarcapitalist.com

New Product – SAE 2 Pin w/5 foot Black SPT-1 cord / 16 AWG leads

by on Feb.05, 2011, under SAE 2 Pin

SAE 2 Pin w/ 5' - 16 AWG

 

Recognizing the number of Do-it-Yourselfers adding their own accessory wiring, we’ve decided to move beyond our initial SAE 2 Pin with 11-1/2″ of SPT-1 cord and 18 AWG.

This product proved popular with customers, and having surveyed thier intended applications it seems an SAE 2 Pin with a heavier, higher capacity (16 AWG vs. 18 AWG), and longer length (5 foot vs. 11-1/2″) would be well received.

Black, manufactured here in the U.S.A., and using the same high quality SAE 2 Pin connector !!!

We welcome email at: bohemianbiker@bohemianbiker.com

Products are available through our e-commerce website at:  www.solarcapitalist.com

10 AWG Application – Customer Pic’s

by on Dec.31, 2010, under Application

Check it out…  Crafty Customer, Mark Penman, assembled and installed some of our SAE 2 Pin – 10 AWG offerings to facilitate easy access to his bike’s 12-volt battery and charging system.  Not only does he now have access via higher amp capacity leads, but he saves himself the trouble of disassembly to gain that access !!!

At 12″ long, our SAE 2 Pin – 10 AWG pigtails are generally of sufficient length to extend from a bike’s battery terminals to a point of easy access.  As can be seen in one of the photos, these “pigtails” can also be used in fabricating a battery terminal clip assembly – miniature battery terminal clips available from us, as well.

We offer SAE 2 Pin – 10 AWG Extension/Jumpers in 5′, 8′, and 10′ lengths – 5′ probably being the best choice with with respect to sufficient reach and easy storage.

It should be noted that special attention needs to be paid to polarity…not only while assembling, but also upon using such assemblies.  As can be seen in photos, Mark has marked the “Hot” (+) postive lead with Red electrical tape.  We have these pigtails manufactured with black insulation on both leads – allowing the assembler to mark as needed for a particular application.

SAE 2 Pin Caps !!!

by on Jul.20, 2010, under SAE 2 Pin

cap-pics-072010-011The 1st lot of sample SAE 2 Pin Caps has arrived !!!  After receiving many inquiries, we decided to pursue having a manufacturer (right here in the USA) develop a mold and start turning out these Caps for us – allowing us to make them available to our customers.   We tried out samples of two different hardnesses on various SAE 2 Pin connectors and found the softer version to fit best.  Plan has been for these to be cheap like caps for your tire valves…available in packaged quantities…making them yet another bargain and we now have a ready supply !!!  Now (9/28/11) after more than a year of sales history, a package of (6) for less than $5.00 has become popular, based on glowing feedback – especially on their availability !!!

New Products / Ideas

by on Jun.25, 2010, under Hello World!

Been a while since I posted last – caught up in daily business routines, product development, a few road trips, as well as…recovering from the loss of my Dad back in March.

Here’s a stab at updating !!!  We now have a ready supply 0f SAE 2 Pin connectors with 12 AWG pigtails (red & black insulation) – both “power side” and “load side” !!!

12-awg-junction

One big accomplishment on the new product development front has been SAE 2 Pin Connectors with 10 AWG wire – allowing us to carry much higher amperages !!!

Not only have we had 12″ pigtail assemblies manufactured, but 5′, 8′, and 10′ jumper/extension assemblies, as well !!!

product-pics-042910-011

prod-pics-052510-001

So…think about the possibilities !!!

We made these up with all Black insulation to minimize variations, and faciltate use in a number of applications without violation of insulation/polarity standards.

Supplying these assemblies…along with ring terminals and miniature “alligator” style battery terminal clamps…paves the way for Do-it-Yourselfers to address several heavier applications.

With a little ingenuity…a convenient means of jump starting one bike off another could even be put together.

As always…strict attention to polarity is of the utmost importance !!!

 

A couple more recent additions !!!

Here’s a specialty “Right Angle” 12V Power Port Plug for those situations in which “that’s the ticket” !!!

right-angle-plug

 

And…here’s a 12V Power Port USB Adapter we have recently added to our line.

12v-usb-converter

 

While we’re on the topic of USB adaptability…

Check out this Globle Solar SUNLINQ USB Plus Solar Charger

 global-usb-plus

A couple recent road trips have driven home the need for “on the go” charging capability.

My new iPhone seems to always be looking for more go juice…
